The Department of Microbiology and Immunology is a basic science department located in the School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Our faculty teach and conduct research on infectious microbes and the immune system. The department is the nucleus for research and education in microbiological and immunological topics at UTHSCSA, and provides a dynamic environment for scientific discovery and training.
Our mission is to advance knowledge in the areas of microbial pathogenesis, inflammation, protective immune responses and autoimmunity, in order to build the knowledge necessary for therapies of the future. To this end, basic and translational research are of equal importance, to foster discovery of biological truths and translate those discoveries into new therapeutics.
Student Education and Research Opportunities
We are committed to developing the next generation of scientists, and to this end, offer a spectrum of training opportunities. We house an undergraduate research program and also offer a Masters of Science program. Our faculty train doctoral students through the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Integrated Biomedical Sciences graduate program. Postdoctoral fellowships are also available.
